So, here are twenty top products you definitely won’t regret adding to your cleaning kit —as recommended by professional cleaners, themselves!

These microfibre cloths are an everyday essential for any cleaning kit
Effective even with just water, these reusable cloths are a worthwhile addition to any cleaning kit. They’re suitable for use on all surfaces, and can be tossed in the washing machine after use.
A lesser-known fact is that baking soda is a great all-purpose cleaner
A non-scratch cleaner made from completely natural ingredients, baking soda can be used to tackle burnt-on pan stains, get spills out of carpets, and even deodorise a smelly fridge.
And so is white vinegar, as it’s a natural disinfectant
The same can be said for white vinegar, which you can use for a myriad of tasks. It’s particularly useful for cleaning glass, as it leaves a great streak-free finish.
This extendable microfibre duster can reach all tricky spots
Super easy to extend, retract., and rotate, this telescopic duster is basically the cobweb master, and will trap and hold on to dust particles rather than simply spreading them around your home.

Use these drain cleaning sticks to deal with drain blockages

And then prevent further build-up by buying a TubShroom
This genius invention is super easy to clean when removed, and traps all hair and debris before it has the chance to wreak havoc down your drains.
Tackle mould, mildew, and grimy grouting with this powerful spray
Especially great for using in the bathroom, this nifty spray eliminates nasty mould stains, as well as preventing any regrowth. Just beware that it packs a real punch, so make sure you crack open a window while you’re using it.

This spin mop and bucket set will leave your hard floors sparkling
